Seven appreciation thread

For my 700th post, I figured I would make a Seven appreciation thread!

I know this song has it's haters (cue almost the whole website), but I personally love the music and Dave's vocal performance. Always a go-to when I'm in a "funny" mood. Love Tim's solo and Carter is also great on this one. Anyways, would love to see if there's some (if any!) people who love Seven as much as I do

    I love Seven. I remember hearing it for the first time at my first show at PNC Holmdel in 2014. Played right after Crush which was already my favorite

    Re: Seven appreciation thread

    Seven is one of the most interested songs in the catalog when it comes to Cater’s drumming. Anyone who is a musician understands how difficult and fun Carter’s playing is on this song.

    The energy of Dave (especially since he loves this song) is about as good as it gets anymore too.

    I think it’s one of those songs that has become ‘cool’ to hate on.

    I appreciate every time I make it through a show without this being played. But it does have a cool time signature and Tim does some great work on it.

    It was so overplayed that it lost its luster with the fans on the boards. It's a really good song but it just suffered from extreme overplay for years.

    I do enjoy seven. A very odd song in every way, which I love. Not all songs need to be super serious.

    How people can hate the musicianship is tough for me to swallow. The horns, Carter, Stefan... just an incredible song.

    Side note - I don’t remember Dave looking like this?

    Not a big fan of listening to the song itself but it's one of the funnest songs ever to play on drums

    Carter's drumming is fine. Dave's vocals on the other hand... *Shivers*

    Disagree. Dave vocals in my opinion are great and it's always fun to try and hit the high notes along with him

    I could never get into Seven. Also, it sucks as an opener.

    Itís like Eh Hee, Rooftop, Spaceman, Funny, etc for me. Just kinda ďthere.Ē

    Listen to the D&T show from Oakland, CA. Seven is yelled out to be played and Dave says "f*ck Seven, no one wants to hear that sh*t!"

    This song has generated some great Davespeak. "This song is more than six, but less than eight" ...wow, very insightful, Dave

    Disagree with everything in this post. Seven is a high energy opener. Also, I love every single song that you listed to death, maybe except Rooftop (the breakdown is brutal). Especially the Little Thing -> Funny 1-2 punch opener they did for a few shows in '12.

    Re: Seven appreciation thread

    I've always liked Seven. Something about the studio version always sounded like classic-DMB to me. It's not The Stone, but it's not Come Tomorrow. Fun time signature, great work from Carter, the horns pop, and Dave's vocal delivery is fun. As someone that likes to sing and write falsetto, I've always appreciated this tune for that.

    Re: Seven appreciation thread

    This song is a prime example that just because a song has "difficult" or "complex" music does not mean it's a good song.

    Is the "musicianship" incredibly high on this song? Absolutely. Is it a good song? Absolutely not. It's horrendous.

    I donít know how to say this without coming across as a D bag, but I honestly believe that people who grew up playing music and still play an instrument have greater respect for complex songs, and as a result, might be more open to enjoying a song because of it.

    I think youíve got two crowds - the crowd that doesnít know the difference between a 4/4 and a 7/8, and the crowd that understands measures, time sigs, general music theory/structure etc.

    The two groups might judge music differently because of their understanding of music.

    As an example, Rush is a band that gets crapped on by the general pop pretty often, but as someone who has played drums for 25 years, I consider Rush one of the most interesting bands to listen to. I donít know if the songs are good or not, I just really like them because itís fun to follow along and take in what they are doing.

    Maybe thatís how I view Seven, I guess.

    For those who rank Seven as bottom three or ‘one of the worst’, if Rooftop isn’t below Seven, you have really bad taste in music

    Seriously. Bottom three puts Seven on the same level as (and maybe this is just my opinion) Plastic Girl and Be Yourself. Thats just crazy talk.

    It's down there, bottom of the barrel, almost entirely because of Dave's vocals for me.
